What Makes a Security Plan?

      Hello, and welcome back to my blog. This week, I would like to quickly discuss the levels that go into making a security plan. These types of plans are an important tool for IT departments and Cybersecurity Administrators to design a plan that will help protect or slow down an attack on the network.     Of course, security plans can vary from company to company; however, their purpose remains the same, with threats looming every day. With IT managers adjusting in response to the ever-changing threats, the created security plan must be designed to stop or slow down any attempt to breach network defenses. Below we will look at the principal components of a security plan and what they entail.    Separate Networks              As the name suggests, having more than one network can protect company assists from hackers and the like. The reason being is that having every computer on one network would lead to issues if that subsequent work were to fail, which would stop operati

GPT vs. MBR Partitioning, A Quick Look

When a new medium is installed on a server or a personal computer, the operating system will not install data until the new storage device has been partitioned. However, some users may not understand which partition method to use when prompted. Below will outline the difference between GPT and MBR partitions, their limitations, and level of security.  What is GPT and MBR partitions?                 Master Boot Record or MBR is an older method that is used for the standard BIOS partition table. Simultaneously, GUID Partition Table or GPT is used in Unified Extensible Firmware Interface or UEFI. “ GPT is new. But the new one is not always better than the old one. Many vendors utilize MBR technology since it is still predominantly used in the real world. GPT disks have the advantages of partition size, the number of partitions, and resilience. If a computer that uses
